Format: Audio CD
Jimmy McGriff best tracks recorded between 1963 and 1970 on different labels are featured here in his inimitable bluesy jazz organ style that evolved later to a more funky groove. Each track swings and highlights are the early 1960s 4 opening tracks, the live track Where it's at and the closing club classics Ain't it funky now and Fat cakes. The best Jimmy McGriff around for sure.

I first came across Jimmy McGriff in the 1960's. His swinging soul style of playing was popular in the dance clubs of the time. I bought the original recording of 'I've gotta woman', on the Sue label, after hearing it in the'Roaring Twenties' night club in Carnaby St. in London.
As an artist McGriff is comparable with the best, Jimmy Smith, Shirley Scott, Booker T etc. but his style is different. He was never to bothered about the opinions of the jazz critics and did things his own way.
Over the years his style has progressed from the early days Blues orientated tracks to the later soul-jazz recordings and even to funk.
Listen to the infectious sounds of 'All about my girl', 'I've gotta woman, 'Fat cakes', 'see see rider'. The straight forward R&B of 'kiko'. Religion as expressed in 'the last minute' and 'gospel time'.
I could comment on all the tracks, but I'd imagine that would become boring, so my advice is listen to the album and then buy it. You won't regret it.
Jimmy McGriffs music is as relevant today as the day he recorded it.

Heard Blue Juice on the Jazz station on DAB and purchased a copy of this CD on the strength of that track. Not so keen on the earlier tracks but from Track 7 onwards this is a thoroughly enjoyable listen. Well worth a purchase if like me the jazz hammond is one of your things!
